Special Tribunal for Russian Criminals

32 countries and 2 separate tribunals for Kremlin crimes against Ukraine

The minister of foreign affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba said that the coalition for the creation of a special tribunal for Russia is expanding. This week, 2 countries have expressed a desire to look at Russia's crimes against Ukraine and take part in court.

Recall that since February 24, 2022, the Russian army has been destroying the key infrastructure and homes of Ukrainian people, killing children, torturing and killing military prisoners, and committing other crimes. Therefore, on January 19, 2024, the European Parliament adopted a resolution on the establishment of the tribunal. The document refers to punishment for the senior leadership of the Russian Federation, including Volodymyr Putin. Later, on January 26, the Parliamentary assembly of the Council of Europe supported the document, so the countries began to join a special tribunal. Rather, the Hague will be chosen as a place for the study of war crimes.

Ukraine also calls for introducing a compensation mechanism that will cover the losses set by Russia to Ukraine.
